Anti-Inflammatory Blend

This anti-inflammatory blend is something I created myself for myself in order to combat some terrible inflammation in my feet and ankles due to bug bites that happened while I was living in Augusta, GA. I found out the hard way that fire ants and fleas are not fun things to live and deal with.

I made this roller bottle of oils that would be not only skin nourishing but also would treat the inflammation that was giving a bad pair of cankles. It worked wonders and now I am only dealing with a little bit of discoloration left from the bug bites.

Anti-Inflammatory Blend

3 drops Frankincense

3 drops Wild Orange

3 drops Lemon

3 drops Marjoram

3 Drops Melaleuca (Tea Tree)

Fill the rest of the roller bottle with Jojoba Wax/Oil

The reasons I used these specific oils was that each had properties that were useful in my current situation.

Frankincense – has analgesic properties, is an anti-inflammatory and is a cicatrisant (skin healing).

Wild Orange – has analgesic properties, is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, has astringent properties, and enhances skin penetration of oils.

Lemon – has analgesic properties, is anti-inflammatory, has astringent properties, and enhances skin penetration of oils.

Marjoram – has analgesic properties, is anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial.

Melaleuca (Tea Tree) – has analgesic properties, is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial.

Jojoba Wax/Oil – I used jojoba because it a skin nourishing oil, but you can use whatever carrier oil you prefer.
